When you move out and have your own bills to pay and cook your own food - when you realise that you got to be independent (easier said than done). It's really about the mindset and I couldn't care less if my opinion is controversial. I stand by it. I don't think it's a matter of age at all (in most cases). You could be over 21 and be the childish of all children. If you still live at home, it's a little difficult to appreciate how much more difficult it is so until you have done so already before.

I never saw it as an 'age', just a time in which you realize you have bills to pay, you're independent, your sense of responsibility becomes natural, etc. You're not an 'adult', until you realize these things. In the words of John Cheese (or whatever his name is), "You can be 35, but not yet an adult. These are 35 year-old children."

It's a mentality, not age-determined.

You could still act less an adult even if you do those things

I don't think that's controversial at all. That's pretty close to how I view it.

I wouldn't necessarily link it to having your own place and paying the bills though (for the record, I do). It's all about the mindset, and maturity. There are young carers etc who are totally independant and are adult in all but legal age.

Yeah, as stated above. If you've never moved out before it's a little difficult to appreciate just how much more difficult it is. That's what I mean by my controversial statement but I still stand by it. Sorry if I caused offence - I really meant none.

As much as I dislike your colour, I agree. I know adults and people way older than me that are immature.

When you are independent.

Living on your own/not at your parents house basically.* Along with that working and taking responsibility for your screw ups. And manning up and getting stuff that needs to be done, done. When you take active steps to improve your life such as setting goals and going for them.

You can have fun like a kid no matter what your age is.

But the adult part of you has to be there as well.

*Though considering the shit economy and how lots of kids are getting useless degrees many are content with moving back in with their parents. I'm not sure how to view that because some genuinely try to fix their situation others just complain and go to protests and shit.

I would say these days 21.

Back in my day, (back in the day, lol) I was 19 when I got my own place, but times have changed with the economy n shit.

That's if I remember rightly, with me being a senile, demented, decrepid, ancient old hag!

lol. I say 18. But i guess it depends on maturity.

It doesn't really matter since age is just a number.

There is no specific age where you magically become an adult, it just depends on the person.

You become an adult when the boring realities and responsibilities of your life take over? No, I don't think so.

"Adult" is just a binary label applied to something with more shades and dimensions than a label is capable of describing. Unless you're a butterfly or moth it's meaningless to put adulthood down to an exact time on an exact day. It's an ongoing process.
#22
A lot of people point to the study of "your brain isn't fully developed until age 25". Then again, though, isn't the brain always developing?
#23
The day you stop mooching off your parents and earning your own existence. You don't necessarily have to live away from them, but you have to at least have a job and be paying rent. It doesn't matter if you are 12 or 92 when it happens, that is the day when I will consider you as an adult.

But for legal purposes, I think it's 21. People are generally more mature and able to develop their own ideas at this point.

Pretty much this.

When I was younger I thought 18, when I was 18 I thought 21, now I'm 21 I'm thinking 25+ even though I moved out at 17/18. Weird.

That's funny. As my friend always used to say,, "16 will get you 20" (implying years in prison. But I didn't realize age of consent is 16 in england?

So now this girl I know that's 16 is actually legal now

You don't just magically become an adult. I'm 18 and I don't really feel like an adult yet. Of course what it means to be an adult is subjective.

Same. I don't want to be an adult, and I know I couldn't handle adult responsibilities yet. But I know some people who have been living on their own since like 16, so being an "adult" has little to nothing to do with actual age.
